Local Content Quota for Streaming Services
This week, Australian actors went down to Canberra to persuade parliament to introduce new rules for streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+. These new rules would mean streaming services would spend 20% of their revenue on new Australian content such as children’s shows and documentaries. This could drive major streaming services out of Australia or at least new services may not think of coming here. But yet creating more Australian content means helping Australia’s industries grow. Professor Amanda Lotz from the Queensland University of Technology joined us earlier to discuss.
